Alec Baldwin should retire his Saturday Night Live Donald Trump impression. The actor claims that the Donald Trump White House inspires so much maliciousness that he feels SNL viewers need a break from the negativity, writes Elahi Izadi in the Washington Post. The SNL skits that Baldwin appear in as President Trump have biting, dark humor that has irked the real president and has fed into a divisive political atmosphere.
The majority of Saturday Night Live audiences want to see more Trump impersonations by Alec Baldwin. According to Laura Nichols in Morning Consult, besides high ratings for the show with Baldwin at the helm, a recent Morning Consult poll showed that 57% of Clinton voters have enjoyed SNL sketches involving impressions of the Trump administration's missteps and want to see more.
